Brockers left as early as he could. For some reason internet draft whizzes hold that against players ala Aldon Smith. But the tape that is out there shows Brockers was the cornerstone of LSU's D, and his combination of size, length, quickness, use of hands will draw comparisons to Richard Seymour.
Personally I think its between Brockers and Cox as top DT. Although Brockers can also be switched to the 3-4 DE spot.
When looking at OTC's first draft, remember the last time the first DT off the board was at #20 was 1996.
Edit: After the combine though, there is probably a lot of concern over his maturity and conditioning. He gained weight and his numbers were less then impressive.
